What is that black stuff around my dogs mouth?

My dog has all this black stuff around his mouth and I would like to know what it is

Answer #1

It can just be crumps from his food mixing with water when he drinks.

It can also be flea dirt (crap) showing he has fleas.

The black stuff around a dog’s mouth is actually apart of their lips. It is black because of pigmentation. It is just how they are.
